Jewelry & Leather Care
Fish skin care:
Fish skin is as resitant as any other leather. The skin behaves like a suede, it will soften and get dirty naturally with time. Please note that we have treated the skin with a leather protector, however it should not be wet or washed.
The unraveled look and raised pockets of the scales is part of the skin and should not be viewed as damaged. If a smoother texture is preferred, you may carefully trim the scales using a small pair of scissors.
For better maintenance of the suede, avoid folding any of the MIMO jewelry. Please store all the pieces flat.
Also, avoid direct sun light as the natural dye might fade when exposed to the sun.
How resistant is the fish leather?
Fish leather is a really remarkably strong material, although there are some differences between species. While salmon and tilapia are somewhat more flexible and can stretch to a certain degree, carp and sea bass are far thicker and more structured.
Keep jewelry clean and dry using a soft cloth. Avoid humidity as much as possible as well as contact with chemicals such hairspray, perfumes, lotions, cleaning supplies or chlorine.
When not wearing, please store inside a soft jewelry pouch.
